Cescily Phillips is the Dean of Students at Ewing Marion Kauffman School.

“Surge is a movement! Something amazing about movements is that they are not just for those actively working within them. Surge’s movement works on behalf of our amazing, talented young people who aren’t always able to fight on their own behalf. And while movements do not create change overnight, they plant seeds and build power that transcends generations. I want to be a part of the movement that is on a mission to build the education system our kids deserve.”
